Katsuyama Townscape Preservation District

Japan, 717-0013 Katsuyama, Maniwa City, Okayama Prefecture

[A townscape full of atmosphere, colored with plant-dyed curtains] Katsuyama flourished as a post town on the Izumo Highway. The old townscape, including the old white-walled storehouses and merchant houses with lattice windows, still remains, and it was the first area in Okayama Prefecture to be designated as a ``townscape preservation district.'' Nowadays, ``Noren'' has become a symbol of Katsuyama, and can be enjoyed by tourists all over the town. In addition, the ruins of the Takase boat landing site, which is said to have started in the Muromachi period, remains along the Asahi River for about 700 meters, and the cobblestones and white walls remind us of the bustle of the past.
